Zara came to me on the 21st of April 2010 and changed my life. Being her third owner she had a ruff start to life and came with a host of 'problems' such as her aggression towards other dogs. The problem didn't lie within Zara but with her previous owners not understanding her and knowing how to train her. I have included many pictures of her playing freely with other dogs. Zara was a very intelligent and understood everything that you said to her. She absolutely loved people, especially kids that would play football or hide and seek with her. Her favourite thing was a ball and she would constantly bring one of her footballs into the house to get someone outside to play with her. She also loved a trip in the car to go on adventures and going camping. In October 2015, Zara and I went on a camping road trip which took us round the north coast 500 route. Which is the road that goes around the coast of Scotland. The trip took us three days to complete and we covered 750 miles.

She will be missed by absolutely every single person that had the pleasure of knowing her. She had such a great personality and was always bounding about full of character. Even on her last Morning before she left us , she came with me to visit my twin nephews of three and spent the morning playing football and running about chasing them. She was a gentle giant and never hurt a soul.

Rainbow Bridge

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.

There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.

There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.

The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; his eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....
